    Raging Against Various Elements

    A MEMOIR DIRECT FROM A RAVER'S UNCONTROLLABLE HEART

    With six dazzling professional ravers that he is proud to call family, Connor takes back the stage to share how unprofessionally human he’s been. How the last five years of grief, pain, love, pleasure, death and dancing have revealed the rage for life that burns on the dancefloor.|

    A true life story with just a bit of bullshit; about the fierce control we exude over our bodies when we feel we have very little control over anything else. About the environment that dance creates that helps process, practice, explore, express and release from the uncontrollable.

    There is no one better to build a sensational space of movement than with the multimedia, installation artist Boris Acket and visual artist and scenographer,
    Elsemarijn Bruys. Working together as a creative time on the physical themes of resonance, vibration, reflection and distortion to make a palpable experience on and off the stage.

    You can expect a loud, dark,
    flashing, ecstatic desire to live
    in flesh and shake that shit up in all directions.
    Because if you look around we're all Raging Against Various Elements.
